 alongside the names of the horses will be a number you will need this for

 placing bets.

 2 If you wish to bet, pick a horse and note the number by the side of it take

 this to Neil and Dave at the front of the room who will take your money

 and issue a ticket. Bets are 50p each, but you can bet on more horses if

 so wish. If you have difficulty with mobility Ken will place your bets for you.

TEN PIN BOWLING.

 Twelve of us turned up this month for ten pin bowling at Lockmeadow

 11 players and one ‘coach’. Great fun was had by us all with David Wood

the highest male scorer with 138 and Laurie a close second with 137.

Marion, of course , had the highest female score with 98. Must mention

Jackie though as we think she has been practising all summer as she has

Improved so much. A big thank you to Marion and Dot for providing us

with biscuits. Come along and join us even if only to have a coffee, biscuit

and a chat.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

SMILING IS INFECTIOUS

YOU CATCH IT LIKE THE FLU

WHEN SOMEONE SMILED AT ME TODAY

I STARTED SMILING TOO

I WALKED AROUND THE CORNER

AND SOMEONE SAW ME GRIN

WHEN HE SMILED I REALISED

I HAD PASSED IT ON TO HIM

I THOUGHT ABOUT THE SMILE

AND THEN REALISED ITS WORTH

A SINGLE SMILE LIKE MINE

COULD TRAVEL ROUND THE EARTH

SO IF YOU FEEL A SMILE BEGIN

DON’T LEAVE IT UNDETECTED

START AN EPIDEMIC

AND GET THE WORLD INFECTED.
